I know that the Adsense Consultant has a new client - a person that does computer repairs. Now the blog is still new but you can take a look at it
This blog is on blogger.com and it is free to create the blog. That way your computer business can have an online presence. Start networking and - hey - what's wrong with the flyer thing? I once did that to help a guy who had an upholstery business and he got calls and subsequent jobs from placing those flyers on parked cars - so its a good and cheap thing to do.
Now a lot of your clients will be local so that means that you'll have to go the local route. I remember making some cut-off advertising flyers for a client who placed them at apartment complexes. Make some business cards and put them everywhere - the same thing applies with flyers - make some up and put them everywhere.
but still have that blog - number because you'll be reaching a far and wide audience - now you may think that you don't have a need for a far-reaching audience but you never know - people may actually start to send you questions that you can answer and that helps to build your reputation.
I just joined the forums and would appreciate any help you guys could lend me. I have been working with computers for about seven years now and would like to start my own business. I don't have a lot of cash flow available as of yet and will be doing this part-time until things can really get going.
My question is how can I advertise my services to bring in customers for cheap, and I mean cheap, or free. I initially thought of doing the flyer under the wipers thing at some local malls but have since been discouraged from doing that as it creates a poor outlook on the business.
Any help with web sites similar to craigslist or any other ideas you might have would be great.
Thanks in advance!
